“Effigies” has just gone live on Bandcamp and the double cd is priced at just £9.99! You also get high quality digital downloads and streaming too.
It will be available on Amazon, etc. in a few weeks but their algorithms always generate silly prices for double discs e.g. £16.99!
Therefore Bandcamp is the place to get it and less of a cut is taken by the middlemen so you are helping to fund the next recordings.
Here is a very kind and very early review for “Effigies” from Mark Barton at Losing Today. He calls the album “a wondrous voyage to secret villages, strange lands, forgotten folklores and distant dreams all kaleidoscopically coloured and radiantly abundant in a peculiar peppering of yarns, bewitchment and heraldic tales.”
The album files went to the factory Aug. 24 and the double CDs will hopefully be back from the factory in 5 weeks maximum.
Thanks to those who have pre-ordered. Your copies will be mailed out within days of them returning from the factory, unless the latest Michael Bolton or Daniel O’ Donnell album somehow gets pressed on to our discs. Just covering my back against Sod’s Law striking. (Sod’s Law: “Anticipating me striking does not exempt you, puny mortal, in fact it tempts me more”. Me:”Oh for f… sake”)
Message me if you want to pre-order.
A low priced download single “Spider Skin”, which is a bit berserk and horribly catchy, will be available within the next 2 weeks from Bandcamp. We may even throw in a digital B Side free of charge.
The album will feature 12 songs
1)Everybody’s Burning Effigies
2)Song For The Flowers
3)Plant Your Flag
4)The Sighing Song
5)The Unholy Ghost
6)Stained Glass Girl
2)Like A Setting Sun
3)Catacombs of Camden Town
4)Your Name In Flames
5)We’ll Go Walking (Please Don’t Let Us Lose The Things That Make Us Who We Are)
6)Theme from “The Haunted Pavilion”
It was produced by Frank Naughton and mastered by Gaz Williams.
Says Nathan, “If you like Love, The Beach Boys, Os Mutantes, Dick Dale, the sound of spaceships crashing into the sun, sleigh bells, Ivor Cutler (you heard me right), Withnail and I, Richard Brautigan, and lose sleep about Noel Edmunds maintaining the same oafish hairstyle and beard for 47 years without challenge, despise austerity and the entire cast of Made in Chelsea, this could be the album for you.”
It will be released in autumn on Amazon etc, but available on Bandcamp and directly from the band earlier than this.
More details on availability will follow.
Now available: “The Volga Sturgeon EP,” the debut release from Nathan Hall and the Sinister Locals.
